History Bus 35

Nottingham City Transport and local historian, Robert Howard, have officially launched “History Bus 35”, a guide to discovering the rich history by travelling along one of the City’s longest bus routes.

Orange 35 passes through, or near, 12 of Nottingham’s 17 Domesday communities, the site of a Roman Fort and the world’s first known railway built in 1603-4 to carry coal from Strelley to Wollaton. The route is also rich in housing of historical significance, from alms-houses and ‘Garden City’ council estates to a Tudor mansion and gated private estate. Former collieries and canals, which are now country parks and places to enjoy the great outdoors are to be discovered on “History Bus 35”.

The best way to travel on “History Bus 35” is with an all day ticket, which gives unlimited travel for the day and enables people to hop on and off the bus to get closer to the historical points on route.

Adult all day travel is £5.30 on the bus and on the NCTX Buses App; a Grouprider – covering up to 5 people (min 1 adult, max 2 adults) is £8.50.
